Charring and Storage Tin
This Charring and Storage Tin is a hinged top container roughly the same size as an Altoids can with rounded edges. It is perfect for making charcloth and charring natural material for follow-on fires. While charred material is typically thought to be reserved for traditional flint and steel fire starting, charred material makes every fire that much easier and can be used with any ignition source! Keep the charred material safe inside the tin after making it.
This Charring and Storage Tin can also be used to make custom kits and keep critical smaller items organized and accessible.
Add a Flint and Steel Kit to use with your charred material.

Can this tin go directly into the fire to char material?
Yes, it will have no problem surviving the fire when making your char.
Will small items like lighters and emergency tinder fit inside?
Yes, there are a number of small items, including full sized big lighters, that fit well inside the tin.
Do I need to poke a hole in the top of the tin to allow gas to escape when making char?
No, the hinges on the tin allow plenty of gas to escape. There is no need to add another hole.
